Looking for a team-building activity that burns calories while building camaraderie? BurnCycle Studio is now offering companies private rides when they book a minimum of 25 bikes. Groups can choose their instructors, music, location and time. 

BurnCycle first opened its doors in Portland, Oregon’s Pearl District in 2013; a second location was opened in Lake Oswego, Oregon, in 2015. The studio’s mission is to help individuals be the best versions of themselves and to create a welcoming gym environment. 

“The BurnCycle culture does not critique, judge or show off,” says Kiki Hanover, director of marketing and strategic partnerships at BurnCycle. “It is aimed to be a safe place for anyone looking to improve themselves.”

Requests for a private class must be made two weeks before the ride. The studio serves clients from ages 14 to 70 and older and can accommodate every level of fitness skill. Each studio can have as many as 45 riders in a class. 

BurnCycle currently is planning to open a Seattle location in 2017 and is also looking into further expansion within the Portland area.

As I write this, I am sitting in the Hilton Anchorage getting ready to head out for a day of tours and adventures with a group of about 30 event planners. About two weeks ago, I was in Vancouver, BC with a group of three other editors/writers doing the same thing in that city. Yeah. I know. I have a pretty fabulous job. And so, I wanted to give a shout out to the CVBs who plan these trips and help me get better acquainted to everything our region has to offer so that I can, in turn, introduce you to new places and things to do when you’re planning a meeting or event.
